    Had a weird issue show up that I can't figure out. Bought juice a week ago, started to taste burnt yesterday after no problems for the week. I replaced the coil, no dice. Replaced the coil the second time, no help. Flushed fluid twice, washed the whole improvement. Does the same thing on either of my boxes. If I cover the hole and blow into it, it tastes OK for a few hits then returns to a burnt taste. I have no idea what's going on here....any thoughts?

    I had the same issue and I never figured it out, I had to throw it away and get another one.

    Maybe it's upgrade time :) .....I always say that

    Are they authentic coils? I only use the authentic aspire because the cloned ones for me always gave a burnt taste.

    It happened to me earlier this week with a dark juice. So I covered the air hole with my finger and sucked really hard to re-prime. Then I got a couple of drops of juice in the mouth. Since then no issue. It's possible that there was a blockage of particulate. The kind you see at the bottom of a depleted dark juice tank.

    I have three Nautilus Minis and what I do when each is empty is clean the burner screen with a bit of scrunched up tissue, take out the coil and do the same below it and rinse out the tank with Spanish Brandy ( which there is dead cheap ) before refilling - so far I haven't had the issue you have though...

    ....however what is the nic strength you are using? I normally enjoy Space Jam's Eclipse at 12 strength; when we came home at short notice because of flooding in the Borders in our town and street, I grabbed a couple of 30 ml Space Jam 18 strength. I got off the plane at Newcastle, filled up my tank which had a fairly new coil in it, shot outside to take a drag and found that I was vaping something that tasted like burnt rubber.

    It was the higher strength that had caused the off taste couple with the fact that the bottle had got warm in my pocket. That juice is now fine but diluted down to the lower strength.

    Never had any problem with my mini so far. I don't use sweet juices , usually change the coil every week and vape on.

    Sometimes when I run too many watts I will get a burnt taste and then I turn the power down and close some of the airflow off

    then I get the vapor and flavor without the burnt taste----Seems I can get a pretty good

    vape from 10 watts------to-----75 watts it just takes a little longer for my coil to start

    to make vapor but I don't get a burnt taste at the lower wattages.

    I think some people are making vapor with way too much power and their wicks are

    drying out and getting burnt too fast and this could be avoided with a lower wattage setting.

    It just seems to take a little longer for the coil to start to produce the vapor........I think

    that people think that the wick is burning and that is the nasty taste they are experiencing

    but really it is also the juice that is burning because of the high voltage settings----you

    can make vapor or you can make vapor and burn the juice at the same time.......

    It turns out I had a whole pack (or at least 4) bad coils from a pack. Opened another pack and everything is good again.

    Genuine coils, all bought from the same place at the same time.

    Glad you got a result! In the past I have had the odd duff one in a five pack but never the amount you got - just one of the reasons I took up coil building even though I am fond of my Nautilus minis and will always be grateful to them for helping me get off of smoking after all those years.
